Ogio has been reinstated as GG by the O’Neill led Government. He is now swearing in the O’Neil-Namah Cabinet. It’s all wine pouring and smiles at Government House. Earlier, Yumi FM reports that Michael Ogio has written a letter to Parliament apologizing for swearing in the Somare faction. Parliament has responded by lifting his suspension
In other developments the Armed Robbery Response Unit (ARRU) set up by Fred Yakasa had surrendered arms and submitted to Toeam Kulunga on Firday. This was the police unit which responded and carried our orders from Fred Yakasa. These policemen stood guard on all State properties in the city of Port Moresby including the Government House where there was a stand-off between politicians and the police. When ARRU surrendered to Kulunga, Fred Yakasa saw it coming that he will be arrested soon and charged with the offence of Mutiny and for issuing illegal orders. Hence, he had no way to go to so went to the National Court and obtained Court Orders "restraining police from arresting him for leading a group of armed policemen to block the road to Government House.."
The case will be coming back to the National Court on Friday, 23rd December, 2011 for arguments on whether the interim orders obtained by Yakasa can be confirmed as substantive and further extended.
